Toe Tally Gone

Anthony is full on freaked out after reading a story about dactylolysis spontanea, or human auto-amputation. This is a real thing that happens when the body decided to remove an appendage – most often the little toe – completely on its own. The worst part is that no one knows why it happens or how to treat it. Jeff tries to console him, but the whole ordeal threatens to ruin Christmas.
